HELLO LOVELIES....

Thanks to Sid and Netty and all of you for your very uplifting comments concerning Malcolm and his eye trauma (Malcolm sends his personal thanks too), - they must have worked in his favour as he is at home and a lot better in himself now, thank goodness.  We even managed a little trip to the seaside today, which was lovely, although a bit cool and breezy!  Monty Moodle loves running around on the wide open space that is the beach - off the lead and totally free.  Although his eyesight won't return for a while Malc enjoyed being out and about again, so it was a great afternoon.

Tonight I am going to concentrate on showing you some more romantic challenge inspiration.  We now have 22 fabulous projects linked up, which you will find HERE - and there are just 6 days to go to get your entries on our blog!  Then five lucky participants will receive a stamp of their choice, and don't forget to claim your 25% discount code when you have displayed your entry.

Lynne has been very romantically creative with the happily loving couple from CI-402..





Love how this has been assembled and the key is divine!





Stunning - thanks Lynne!

I used the same stamp to make a card...



I die cut an oval and covered it with old dictionary paper and tape, then gave it a light spray with white paint, for a faded effect, before adding the cut out image (stamped onto our smooth ivory card) and parts of the die from the Floral Branch.

Joanna too loves using the Floral Branch die, and I adore her flowery makes....


 
Both makes very romantic indeed, I'm sure you will agree?!

Brenda used CI-402 again to make a clever scenic project, with a great storyline..


And Gio has made a fashionably romantic triptych affair with the lovely ladies from  CI-401 (and a little help from some very pretty Silver Filigree Corner Charms)..



Plus she has created a perfect fairytale romance with the help of CI-137, and the mask 'Floral Frame'...



Such pretty colours!

Finally I have two fun and romantic projects.  The first from Effie ...



With a little Tea for Two (CI-391), and the second from Helen (nice Stampbord project on there too Helen!)...



Check out the Alice Palace range of stamps to find these little 'romantic' beauties.

Many thanks ladies,

Back soon,

Inspirational projects! Joanna's soft spring colours and dimensional card is just awesome and I love the fantastic scene Brenda's created. This is why stamps are my favourite crafting tools! Pleased to hear Malcolm is feeling better and hope his eyesight returns to normal soon.
